H&M Oak Park Mall Kansas Grand Opening + Giveaway!

2103_W35_01 hi res-001

You guys.  I’ve been so excited this week to share this awesome news + giveaway with you!  H&M is opening up their very first store in Kansas, in Oak Park Mall on Thursday, September 19, 2013.  And I’ve got the details on this stylish and affordable Swedish retailer’s newest location to share with you.  And stick around until the end for an awesome GIVEAWAY!  🙂  H&M is one of my favorite places to shop for trendy clothing, accessories, and basics at amazingly low prices! Seriously, whenever I’m at the Country Club Plaza, I must stop by this store. And they have some super cute stuff for little people too — Austin has tons of clothing from there!

On Thursday, September 19, 2013, doors will open at noon at Oak Park Mall. The first 200 shoppers in line will get an H&M shirt and an Access to Fashion Pass, valued from $10-$300, in addition to other offers for the whole family!  But you should probably get there early to make sure you are one of the first 200.  Not sure if you knew this, but H&M is the first fashion company to roll out a  global  garment recycling program. Through this initiative, H&M customers at  Oak Park Mall can help save natural resources and contribute to reduced environmental impact by donating old and unwanted pieces of clothing from any brand while in the store. Customers who come to donate on opening day will be entered to win a gift card valued up to $100.

H&M, one of the world’s largest retailers known for offering fashion-forward apparel and quality basics, is also the largest user of organic cotton in the world. The store at Oak Park Mall will offer the best of sustainable fashion through its Autumn 2013 collection. Allowing Overland Park consumers to shop in style, H&M will offer the latest autumn trends such as cropped jackets, chunky sweaters, and boots for women, and hooded coats, tailored pants, and knit hats for men.  Here are some pieces I am eyeing for myself from the Autumn collection~!

    I LOVE shopping at H&M for professional workwear, especially suit jackets and skirts. They’re affordable, trendy, modern and wash and wear so well! I’m glad they’re opening a second H&M, maybe it’ll help take some of the traffic off the Plaza location! lol

    I’m so excited for the OPM opening! I was bummed that it wouldn’t be opened until after my pregnancy (I literally lived in HM maternity jeans this summer). My husband and I both love shopping and HM but I’m excited now to explore the little girls section of HM as my newborn grows (we are already fond of the boys section, which reminds me I have an online shopping cart I need to order!) 🙂

    I haven’t yet shopped at H&M but I’ve been checking out their website for some time. SO excited they’ll be at OPM!

    I am so glad H&M is coming home ;). I was driving back to St. Louis (Chesterfield, West County). Then YEAH H&M Country Club Plaza. Now Oak Park Mall. What next Godiva inside of H&M. I love, love the kids section. My two girls are H&M billboards. I am an H&M billboard. Everytime I am in the mall I rub my fingers across the wall where it will soon be. My seven year old keeps saying, “You can’t wait!” The women dresses, shirts, jeans, accessories. Lions, tigers and bears, oh my.

    I really really hope I win! My wardrobe needs some help!

  16. September 16, 2013 / 10:28 pm

    And I would shop for women children and men at H&M! I love it all!

    H&M is the perfect shopping spot for my large family. I have 7 children. 2 are in their twenties, 4 are teens & one is a toddler. Plus, I also have a pretty wife who still likes to look sexy & stylish. Me, I’m the cool dad who still has his beauty on duty. Therefore, H&M is the perfect place to keep the whole family looking good at a affordable prize. Our family can keep it’s swagger without breaking the bank. My wife & daughter loves the shoes, jewelry & dresses. My sons love the jeans & jackets. I love the $5.00 t-shirts & sunglasses. when I wear the t-shirts I look like a action figure. Now, thats a bargain at any price. Cool T-shirts $5.00. Looking good priceless. My whole family loves H&M.
